I’ll Be the Male Lead’s Sister-in-Law - Chapter 147
Translated by ShainaG Translations
Besides, Mu Mingtang sent over all the green brocades! Even if Jiang Mingwei likes to wear clothes that were light blue and light green, but now, seeing the green brocade, she couldn’t help but wonder whether Mu Mingtang was trying to imply something?
However, with everyone’s gaze on her, the only thing Mu mingtang didn’t say was, “You can’t reject gifts from your seniors.” Mu Mingtang was so shameless, but Jiang Mingwei couldn’t refuse. Jiang Mingwei could only endure, as she smiled: “Thank you, my sister-in-law. But a piece of golden brocade is really expensive, I can’t accept this without anything in return. How dare I accept such a precious gift?”
The maid still recited Mu Mingtang’s exact words: “The Princess said that Princess Jin should just accept it, there is no need to give anything in return. What Princess Jin likes are paintings and calligraphy, piano and chess scores. The princess does not pay much attention to these, it’ll be of no use even if you do so, so Princess Jin, you don’t have to give anything in return.”
Jiang Mingwei almost vomited a mouthful of blood. Mu Mingtang was so shameless and even picked out the gifts she wanted in return?
How could she be so shameless?
However, in the end, the thin-skinned can’t fight with the thick-skinned. Jiang Mingwei didn’t want to embarrass herself in front of everyone, so she could only grit her teeth and say: “How can I be that way? I should give something in return. I got a new set of white jade head-ornaments yesterday. I haven’t worn it yet, so if my sister-in-law is okay with it, just take it. It’s just a small gift, I hope my sister-in-law will like it.”
The leading maid bowed at Jiang Mingwei, but said nothing this time. After Jiang Mingwei asked the maid to retrieve it, she accepted it and left. Jiang Mingwei was stunned. The white jade head-ornaments were specially made for the New Year’s Eve palace banquet. The raw materials used for that white jade were very expensive, not to mention the wages. That precious and expensive jewellery, it was exchanged for four green brocades?
Jiang Mingwei looked calm and generous in front of everyone, but her heart was dripping blood. Merchants had been selling Song Brocrades on a very large scale these days. Although it was still very expensive, the prices were falling day by day, but the white jade jewelry given by Jiang Mingwei was made of real gold and silver. This time, she suffered a great loss.
Inside the Yu Lin Hall, Mu Mingtang opened the box held by the maid, and the tip of her eyebrows jumped. Eight hundred for ten thousand, this business transaction was so worth it.
As for the few green brocades sent out, Xie Xuanchen refused to wear clothes in green anyway, and Mu Mingtang also felt that the omen from it wasn’t that good, so he just treated it as a way of waste management and sold it to Jiang Mingwei. Facts have proved that Jiang Mingwei is really a qualified taker.
Mu Mingtang held back her laugh, and dismissed the maids. Xie Xuanchen noticed Mu Mingtang’s strange expression, he had already guessed the result, but still asked, “How was it?”
Mu Mingtang brought the box to Xie Xuanchen as if she was offering him some sort of treasure and opened it, “Look!”
Xie Xuanchen lowered his gaze and glanced, then smiled slightly and said, “The radiance from it is really nice.”
Even Xie Xuanchen said so, it should be really valuable. Mu Mingtang happily put it away: “Jiang Mingwei is so easy to fool. I’ll be able to make a fortune from this after a few more rounds.”
Xie Xuanchen felt that Mu Mingtang’s source of happiness was so simple. Being affected by her, Xie Xuanchen’s mood improved unknowingly: “My wife is too good at managing our family matters.”
Mu Mingtang raised her eyebrows when she heard this, she then said: “It’s your guidance.”
After all, this idea came from Xie Xuanchen. Not only did it satisfy Mu Mingtang’s desire to buy low and sell high, but it can also shut the emperor’s mouth. It was a brilliant idea.
Perhaps, it could also displease the people who disliked them. Mu Mingtang admired Xie Xuanchen very much. In this world, some people seemed weak and harmless, but were actually the ones behind all these vicious ideas.
Xie Xuanchen gave a soft chuckle, he did not refute, and wasn’t too bothered about it: “As long as you’re happy.”
